The fee adjustment for the 2019 billing cycle is due to increased costs of recycling and waste collection. Summit County continues to work for our residents to minimize cost impacts in a challenging and rapidly changing recycling and solid waste market while maintaining our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.
Summit County uses a single stream collection, recyclable materials are mixed but kept separate from other waste. Recycling prevents waste of useful materials, reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, energy use, and water pollution. When non-recyclable material is placed with recyclable material it decreases the quality of the recyclable material. Depending on the contamination level it cannot be recycled and is sent to the landfill.
